Prof. Harry Klee, a tomato researcher at the University of Florida says: “If I take two plants on a conventional farms and reduce the fertilizer levels on one, I will get 40 percent smaller fruits with higher nutrient content.” They may be smaller but they are also mightier. Organic tomatoes pack in more cancer fighting phenols and vitamic C than conventionally grown tomatoes, according to a research article published in the journal, PLOS ONE.
We hope the above study helps consumers, especially those who are very health conscious, to gain more awareness about the benefits of using organic fruits and vegetables like tomatoes in this instance.
